Transferring knowledge to create continuity in times of change
This was a senior-level roundtable event with the Project Management Institute, where we examined good practice in project management and how you can implement a knowledge transfer process for your organisation.
This free roundtable event shared research from their Pulse of the Profession ® [Opens in new window] report to support knowledge retention.
Knowledge transfer sounds easy, but it’s deceptively challenging. PMI research from this year shows that 75% of high-performing organisations (the top 12%) have formal knowledge transfer processes, and among low-performing organisations this falls to just 35%. It’s perhaps surprising therefore to learn then that, for many organisations, it’s still not seen as a priority.
Transferring knowledge works best when it’s something that’s embedded into an organisation’s culture; and employees like it. 90% of them are willing to share knowledge and 82% on average adhere to an organisations knowledge transfer process.
So why don’t more organisations do it?
During periods of change, when personnel and organisational structure are changing, it is essential that organisations capture and transfer knowledge to ensure that their operations continue to run smoothly. This event looked at why effective knowledge management processes are vital for effective programme and project management.
